Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria: How to Play the Fan-Made 4K Remaster on PC
Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria is a classic JRPG developed by tri-Ace and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 2 in 2006. The game features a unique combat system, a rich story, and stunning visuals that pushed the PS2 hardware to its limits. However, the game has never been ported to any other platform, and the original PS2 version only supports up to 1080i resolution.
Fortunately, thanks to a fan-made 4K remaster project, you can now enjoy Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria on your PC with improved graphics and performance. The remaster uses AI-upscaled high-resolution textures, fixes some visual bugs, and corrects the depth of field effect in cutscenes. It also includes the latest build of PCSX2, a PS2 emulator that allows you to run PS2 games on your PC.
In this article, we will show you how to download and install the fan-made 4K remaster of Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria, and how to configure it for optimal gameplay. You will need a copy of the NTSC version of the game (either an ISO file or a physical disc), and a PC that meets the minimum requirements for PCSX2.
Step 1: Download the fan-made 4K remaster package
The first step is to download the fan-made 4K remaster package from this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ie3xX5WAnYMFT5Yk-of7bf6gyPV-Wrp9/viewusp=sharing. This is a zip file that contains PCSX2 with proper settings and the remastered textures. You can also use this alternative link if the first one does not work: https://mega.nz/file/HGwglCAR#3SFRZVOmelQrH-CK185eV3Iht10AXts2uuHBiMD96RY.
Once you have downloaded the zip file, extract it to a folder of your choice. You should see a folder named \"Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria Remastered\" with several files and subfolders inside.
Step 2: Get your Valkyrie Profile 2 NTSC ISO or disc
The next step is to get your copy of Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria (NTSC version) that you will use to run the game on PCSX2. You can either use an ISO file that you have ripped from your own disc, or use a physical disc that you have inserted into your PC's DVD drive. Note that you should only use a legal copy of the game that you own.
If you have an ISO file, copy it to the \"isos\" subfolder inside the \"Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria Remastered\" folder. If you have a physical disc, make sure it is recognized by your PC and note down its drive letter (for example, D:).
Step 3: Start PCSX2 and configure your controller
The third step is to start PCSX2.exe from the \"Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria Remastered\" folder. This will launch the emulator with the proper settings for Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria. You should see a window like this:
